Najib Announce VEP for Spore cars!

Recommended Posts

Go malaysia is jin song de.

 

Drive here drive there, explore here explore there. Buy chinese biscuit, buy durian, buy more chinese biscuit, buy more durian. Then wack KFC on ayer keroh. Then go karak highway wack all the way and down. Then wack dunkin donut at petronas on karak. Then wack car more. Drive car is jin song. Then happy happy good mood go genting donate some money.

 

They make so much money from daft sinkies like me and still want complain. Maybe the money I spend there in one weekend is already more than what their average family spend in a month.

 

Somemore I never pump their cheap petrol unless required because their ron is low. I only say their ron is low, I never say their petrol is low class.

 

Nvm, next time I just buy air ticket go somewhere else for some weekend getaway.

your money goes to chinese merchant, durian seller, KFC, and most importantly uncle Lim

the problem is $$$ did not go to the intended pocket that is waiting and waiting

this VEP ... is like direct ATM machine ...

can't say for sure but my gut feeling is tat the JB food n retail businesses will drop by say at least 10%.

 

with (assumed is RM90) imposed on s-plate, just do the sum, watever savings from buying stuff, petrol is wiped out.

 

also i think average ppl dun calculate that much, ppl spent just base on gut feeling, is a feeling of having the power able to spent without checking your wallet. now tis fee is like a mental thing, adding a fee is like adding a mental block, or a hurdle to spend.

Faint lor....weekend sg supermarket already so crowded until I want to shoot someone and come back with black face - can't imagine how bad it will be if JB supermarket shopping is cut off.

 

One factor for me shopping in JB is the lack of crowds - can actually move around without wanting to humtum someone

 

I feel tense & agitated when its crowded in general. Think Sg is the most densely pop country in the world?

They talk for the longest time yet dun have the balls to do it. I pray they do it then they will see their tourism dollar drop from Singapore side. JB town will be back to stone age.

Nah, not Spore. Most densely populated place in the world right now is Gaza (Palestine).

So far the noises from across the Causeway is they going to charge VEP RM50 while its Sport Minister, Khairy propose that Msia charge the same amount as Spore $35 or around RM90....

 

Good.. I hope it will be at least RM50.

i too hope they talk real for this time, for me i jus hv to adjust my lifestyle, day to day routine

bcos i travel to n fro alot.

i think is good to see tis group of ppl spend in Spore, it will boost the domestic retail, petrol, makan, tourism.

am ready to buy Sheng Siong stock within say next 3-5 months. will go to their stores to observe crowd.

biggest gain will be grocery business.

In fact, I hope they make it a variable VEP (like our ERP system) so that ungodly hours like early AM (when it's still dark out) are charged minimally (max RM20) or not at all, while morning peak hours are charged maximally (at least RM50, even RM100). That way, people have a choice whether to wake up at 4am to squeeze with the rest of the crowd who don't want to pay too much VEP or get up at a relaxed 7:30 to breeze through the causeway with the few cars willing to pay a higher VEP.

With our neighbours, there is no hope.

U think it's bad policy for mys to increase VEP?

 

They may turn down the marginal owners but they can attract those with spending power but avoid mys due to jams.

 

If marginal owners have to find ways to reduce cost and we all know by driving slow, they will be able to save a few bucks for petrol.

 

And when they drive slow, LTA will have reasons to increase ERP because ERP based on average speed.

 

All these are vicious cycles and hope when 2015~2017, these mariginal owners will be weed out.

 

I hope by then I am not one of those.

 

Be careful what one wish for.

Doesn't affect me at all.

 

No time to go JB. While i did enjoy driving in malaysia, however, not many places nearby to drive to without an overly long trip (at least as a family resort)/

 

I don't find most groceries in Malaysia cheap anyway. Probably because I'm used to semi-branded stuff like pringles, mamy poko, persil, UIC etc. When i go supermarkets in malaysia, i buy less things than i do in SG lol.

I seriously cannot imagine if the crowd increases by even 10% at sg supermarkets - for me, I like to shop at the big giant at Tampines - hate NTUC / cold storage - just not my style.

The tampines giant, already crowd like fark - even a 5% increase there (mostly drivers because location) and will be crap

speaking of ERP, i think everyone knows that ERP is based on average speed.

 

As a driver and a biker myself, bikes who lane split during slow traffic actually increases this average speed so as to prevent an increase of ERP.

 

therefore, i hope everyone give way to motorcycles.

 

Nonetheless, we can only speculate and analyse how this policy will work out. Only time will tell the impact.

 

PS: Hope they dun impose any VEP on motorcycles since SG only impose on private cars and commercial vehicles. [cool]

My main concern is when I need to cross over, still got jam or not? As long as no jam, they can do whatever it pleases their mothers.

I think is for their own good, maybe they should set a fee that can see 30% drop in traffic toward JB.
